Why do AppStudio applications look significantly better on Mac than Windows?

Has anyone else noticed that applications built using AppStudio tend to look significantly better on Mac than they do on Windows? Windows apps built using AppStudio, imho, seem to have an issue with antialiasing or scaling of digital assets. I'm not sure what it is but there is a noticeable difference. I've also noticed that Windows Apps seem to be more buggy.

 

Take Survey123Connect for example. On the Mac (left), the everything is clean and crisp, text is centered inside the buttons, it looks great. On Windows however, there are some noticeable issues with centering text inside the buttons and the lines GUI elements aren't quite as smooth or clean as they are on a Mac.

Why is this and is there anything I can do to fix it on Windows-versions of my apps? Am I just crazy?
